Financial empowerment for therapists and other helping professionals

Financial empowerment for therapists and other helping professionals

You can achieve financial wellness. When you’re ready to make the money you want, keep more of what you have, and feel less anxious about money, then I’m ready to help you get there.

Mike Pumphrey, AFC®

I’m a financial coach (money coach) who understands that you can’t separate money from emotions.

I spent years working through my own anxieties around money: the fears, the scarcity, and the general lack of knowledge that comes from never having been taught how to make money work for me.

From this I learned that it’s not just about how much money you have, it’s how you feel about it—and how you manage it—that truly matters.

My heart has always gravitated to those who most easily connect to the emotional side of money, because 
when you can heal your relationship to money, when you can move from a place of anxiety to true empowerment, you can accomplish anything.

That’s why I love to work with mental health therapists and others who work in the helping and healing professions. If this is you, you’ve already got such a head start (even if you didn’t realize)! 

I can’t wait to meet you and help you on your journey.


Polyamory-friendly coach and LGBTQI+ ally. Individuals, couples, and all relationship styles welcome.

"Mike is skilled both at navigating emotions that come up around money as well as practical skill-building. I often find that many coaches seem inauthentic or ungrounded. Mike is not that way at all."


Take an active role in managing your money to make it work for you (instead of wondering where it went).

Setting goals

Work smarter, not harder, and set clear, achievable intentions for your financial future.

Debt elimination

Make a plan to pay debt down (and off!) for good, while still having a life.

Relationship coaching

Build stronger connections with your loved ones, be it partners, parents, or children.


It’s never too early (or too late) to start planning for the point at which you stop working for money and start having your money work for you.


Take control of your money story, stop letting money hold you back, and become the person you want to be.

Comments from coaching clients I've worked with over the years.

“When I was in a money fog, Mike helped me navigate my way out. He was patient and kind and really listened. He gave me practical tools that are helping me be in charge of my money, instead of the money being in charge of me.”
Anna S., Oregon
Coaching Client
“Working with Mike felt like having a huge weight lifted off my shoulders. Talking about my finances had always been uncomfortable, with a vague tinge of shame. Mike brought a lot of humor, logic, and intuition to our work together, and the sessions have helped me radically reshape the way I think about debt and money.”
Margaret R., Colorado
